Stop Riding! You're gonna get CANCER!

Now I know why Wink rides so much, he doesn't want any more daughters

Quote:
We know that being a biker is not a risk-free life. Accidents can happen at any moment, and even with the best protection that the motorcycle industry has to offer, we’re never 100% safe.

But now according to Randall Dale Chipkar, helmets are no longer enough for motorcyclists to protect themselves. In his just released book, Motorcycle Cancer?, author Chipkar raises questions about motorcycle safety. He asks, “Are unsuspecting riders at risk for cancer development from electromagnetic radiation shooting up right between their legs?”

The reason; according to Chipkar, the electromagnetic radiation coming from the engine shoots right up into our body. Our motorcycle seats offer no protection whatsoever. The extremely low frequency (ELF) electromagnetic field (EMF) radiation shoot right through the seats.

Chipkar states:

“Is it a paradox that thousands of motorcycle riders participate in fundraiser rides for cancer awareness when the event itself may be causing cancer?”

“The motorcycle industry needs to further investigate this possible EM danger and, if necessary, implement protective measures to minimize rider radiation exposure. Consumer safety is priority. An EMF radiation shielding seat can provide riders with peace of mind,”.

“Are motorcycles shooting potentially carcinogenic electromagnetic (EM) energies into the rider as a ‘Death Shower’ from below? Could this increase the risk of developing lymphomas, leukaemia or cancers of the prostate, testicle, colon, bladder, kidney, liver, pancreas, stomach, etc? Are both the heart and immune system also at risk? Various non-motorcycle electromagnetic energies have been called ‘Invisible Death’ and ‘The Silent Killer’.”

What do you think? Is this a realistic threat, or not? Have there been any real tests perrformed by labs to back this up or have cancer statistics amongst bikers analysed, if not then surely there’s no basis for this statement?

Seems like scaremongering to me and until i see concrete evidence that this is the case i won’t be worrying getting cancer from my bike.

Possible. But it won't scare no one.
I'm wondering if the good doctor has a patent for a shield.

I thought you were kidding with the title.

Well, just another thing to add to the list. Good thing we still have cancer-free toothpaste.

Sure, but your insurance company will subrogate your winnings and leave you with less than you started with. Then a ninja dwarf will slit your achilies tendon.

Everything causes cancer these days. I read in the RedEye today that working overnight shifts causes cancer.

Yeah, I heard that on the news yesterday as well. It is just everywhere and can be caused by anything. I think we just have to not stress about it and hope that we don't get it.

Yep, I heard that they have a bad ass immune system, and can't catch any diseases . Maybe some genetic engineering Dr. Moreau experimenting is in order
